About Catherine Chudley
Martyn, myself and our two children live in the farmhouse and run a bed and breakfast. We are a very friendly, welcoming family, always happy to help and advise on whatever is needed, from suggestions for day trips or how to use the dishwasher! Martyn is the farmer and I run the B and B and holiday cottage, however the key is to be able to work well together.
Catherine Chudley purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Catherine Chudley chose Totnes
Jacks Cottage is a very quiet cottage, located in the middle of our 300 acre farm. Jacks has its own private drive and garden. You will be extremely comfortable and able to completely relax. Jacks has been awarded five star gold by Visit Britain, you really won’t want for anything. With crisp bed linen and fluffy soft towels the cottage has been renovated to the highest standard. Beautiful garden over looking our corn fields in the summer and a cosy lounge with woodburner for the colder months.
What makes this Cottage unique
The unique benefit of Jacks cottage is its location and stunning views. I am always at hand to help and advise if needed. Staying with us is a welcoming experience.

We will be back.
Thank you so much, it was lovely meeting you all and thanks for your kind words. Looking forward to next time for a catch up in the sun!!
Amazing cottage. Wonderful owners. Perfect setting. Highly recommend. Can't wait to return.
An amazing cottage, perfectly decorated and stocked with everything you could need. So much thought has been put into the holiday home. It was quiet and peaceful - perfect for our get away. The owners were friendly and very welcoming. We felt at home in their cottage which made for a perfect time away. Have already started looking at the next time we can return. We would rate them as a 20 out of 10 for everything.
Thank you so much for your kind review. We very much enjoyed your company during one of our busiest times... lambing, so hope that you can return again to enjoy a holiday in Jack’s XX
A very comfortable and well equipped cottage in a beautiful country setting.
This cottage is a perfect get away, snuggled in the rolling Devon hills with far reaching views across farmland during the day and skies littered with stars at night. Despite this it is only a five minute drive to either Harberton or Harbertonford village and Totnes is only 15 minutes drive away. We brought our dog and took long walks through fields along the public footpath that passes near by the cottage. Having lived and explored around both Totnes and Harberton it was a wonderful surprise to discover this beautiful patch of countryside. The house itself has very comfortable beds, great showers, a really well equipped kitchen, log fire, and private outside seating with unspoilt views. Catherine is a really friendly (and funny) but unintrusive host. A great place for families or two couples (as there are two ensuite showers) - and dogs! We will be back to stay again soon.
How lovely to read your kind review, thank you for this and we very much look forward to seeing you again soon. Catherine
Superb house and location
Warm and friendly welcome. Jack's was a lovely retreat. Everything one could wish for in a holiday home. The South Hams area is stunning and the location perfect for the balance of moors and sea. Highly recommended.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It was a pleasure having you stay with us and do hope to see you again in 2019. Many thanks Catherine
Jacks Cottage, although set in a very rural location on our farm, we are only a 30 minute drive away from many places of interest. The many beautiful beaches on the South Hams coastline are only a 30 minute drive away. The picturesque towns of Salcombe, Kingsbridge and Dartmouth are only a 30 minute drive away. Totnes even closer, pretty much on our doorstep only 5 miles away. A very popular day trip is to take the foot ferry from Totnes down to Dartmouth, or even the round robin trip which incorporates a steam train ride and also an open bus ride. The South Devon Railway is also very popular and close by. Catch the train at Buckfastleigh (20 minuets from Jacks) and take the steam train through Staverton and ending up in Totnes. Dartmoor National Park is less than half an hour from the cottage, the pretty village of Widdecombe in the moor is well worth a visit.
